Speeding up the best in health and care, together

Spotting the Signs of Sepsis

Health Innovation Network (HIN) has been working in partnership with NHS England and the ASK SNIFF Safety Netting Collaborative to produce the “Spotting the Signs of Sepsis” film series. The films have achieved over a million views to date.

The film, up now on NHS Choices and in south London Children’s Emergency Departments, features Dr Ranj, NHS doctor and TV presenter for This Morning and CBeebies. It has been designed to raise awareness of sepsis amongst parents of children under 5, as well as to standardise the information clinicians provide for parents of children with fever well enough to be cared for at home (often called safety netting advice).

If you are interested in showing the film to parents in your Emergency Department or would like more information about the project, please contact hin.southlondon@nhs.net.

This project was lead by Dr Lauren Fraser, Darzi Fellow.
